. and on the obama side, it was pretty clear his campaign was about the middle class. and every single ad we ran was if mitt romney wins, the middle class loses. so i think there was a much clearer lane for us to swim in than on the romney side. were they supposed to defend against the bain attacks? were today supposed to bet -- get into the welfare reform game? it was unclear. >> look, though, you run a superpac. do you think they're good for america? >> no. i think a system where you can give unlimited contributions and in some cases not disclose who those contributions come from is not something that's particularly a good thing for the country. our view is that even though we were against citizens united, even though we support campaign finance reform, as long as karl rove and the koch brothers were going to have hundreds of millions of dollars in this election, we were going to make sure that somebody had the president's back and not, you know, and not just sit on the sidelines while all that money was being spent. >> so that means we now have a bipartisan consensus. because newt gingrich wa
and president obama has offered nothing? i think the american people understand that yes, the president was reelected, but that doesn't mean that he just stays in burma until a decision is reached. you have to be involved and he has to have leadership and he has to show what he would be prepared to do. the house has gone up. gerri: time and again, as i recall. governor pataki, do you so much for coming on the show. always a pleasure. coming up, getting hit hardest from the fiscal cliff. we are teasing the rest of the fiscal cliff. the democrats think they have the edge in talks over the fiscal cliff. is that the case? a political panel is weighing in coming out. gerri: the notorious gridlock escalating with neither side budging over the fiscal cliff. >> we put revenue on the table. significant spending cuts. >> you can't get more options. gerri: a one-two punch, at the end of the year. will washington ever get its act together and what is at stake? bringing in our all-star panel. former campaign adviser to john mccain and doug shown also a fox news contributor. >> there might be a last-
. electing president obama, if you remember, if you go back to win, leading up to and when he announced his support for marriage equality, one you had many people just asking the question. is this going to be good? is this going to be bad? than you had our opponents saying the doom and gloom scenario suggesting to other politicians that they follow the president's lead and they will follow it right into retirement. one of my favorites that became a pet project of mine and many of you probably got my fundraising call before this little race in iowa, justice wiggins was on the ballot for -- in iowa. our opposition, the three judges on the iowa supreme court ever up in, the national organization for marriage spent $1 million to keep them and did so by 10 or 15 points. justice wiggins was the fourth judge on the ballot this november was made their priority as well. they spent hundreds of thousands of dollars and they campaigned across the strait and had us trips across the state. we went in with some lawyers that were there in the state and a partner in the campaign and we save justice wiggins.
of gifts to latinos and voter minorities that is insulting. they didn't vote for obama because of obamacare. i think that he is engaging in obama in the same type of class warfare discussion that he wants to have. i think we have to go back to the conservative populism which is to talk about the economy but i would say something else. we cannot run only on the economic message. we have to be full conservatives on social issues, on the national security and on the economy. >> and aspirational americanism where you are free to go as far as you want to go and to do what you want to do and york absolutely right about the community especially, you know, they're very on japan real and when they start small businesses, guess what they start liking the big government less. >> unfortunately we are out of time so want to thank you all for joining me today and please join me in thanking our panelists.

low, but now they have an up arrow. connell: we will shift over to the debt crisis. president obama reached out and spoke to some. name ceos try to avoid going over the fiscal cliff. dagen: why is this a bad idea, monica crowley? this is what the president should be doing, should he not? >> if he didn't have a history of blowing off these ceos and their advice, and we would say, yes. every single time he has asked them to come in and talk, nothing comes of it. he doesn't listen to any of them dagen: maybe the fear is that we will go over the cliff. >> most of the ceos that you just put up on the screen, warren buffett, a huge supporter of his support tax hikes. the message he is getting is, yeah, go ahead and do what you want to do. connell: even when you listen to john boehner and others coming out, we are making progress. making progress means revenue is on the table. entitlement cuts, presumably, are on the table. >> it depends on what we mean by increased revenue. they have two courts declare principles that place here. number one, do not raise taxes. number two, cut spending. t
of limited government. is there something they could do to the kind of blind restraint we got in the obama care decision? >> yes. this is something i bring up regularly in my short almost two years in the senate we of course have yet to process any supreme court nominees but we process with some regular arty lower court judges. and it doesn't matter whether they are district judges or circuit judges i make a practice of asking them what their views are on the enumerated powers doctrine and i will ask them to identify even if it requires some degree of speculation what if anything false outside of congress's power under the commerce clause and i make it more difficult for them by telling them that they can't identify lopez or more son and now i'll add to that n.f.i.b. as the basis of their theory. you find it interesting to see some of the responses. a lot of them look at me if i've insulted their mother or something like that. a lot of them look at me if i've asked them to derive pie to the 800th decimal from memory but it's an important question. i also think it's interesting to watch wha

[ gordon ] for some this line is a convenience. how you doing today? i'm good thanks. how are you? i'm good. [ gordon ] but for others,
the conventional wisdom here in washington is that president obama is sort of in the driver's seat with these negotiations. that being said, i think that there's a good deal of pressure on both sides here. if, indeed, we go over the fiscal cliff, there are a number of things that republicans are tremendously concerned about, not the least of which is the tax increases, the expiration of the payroll tax holiday, capital gains tax increase. there are a number of things frightening republicans right now, there's a number of things that should truly be frightening democrats. democrats control the white house, they have a larger majority in the senate. there is certainly some onus on president obama, the white house and senate majority leader harry reid to show that the democratic party can govern in a moment of great fiscal crisis. so i think there's a tremendous amount of pressure to go around here. while the conventional wisdom is that the president is in the driver's seat, i think that there's plenty of leverage to be had on capitol hill. jon: and republicans are not likely going to
that president obama was able to capitalize with women, was able to capitalize with hispanics, with other people who may have felt alien meanted? >> you define yourself. ronald reagan ran as a pro-life candidate. but, again, he defined a certain agenda. he set what is positive things on out there. if you don't, the other side will do it for you. so they got away with war on women and the idea that gm was a choice between liquidation and reorganization xhrks is wasn reorganization, which is wasn't. romney had a good plan that would have saved tax players $30 billion. >> so you don't think the platform of the party will be fundamentally a different platform? >> you don't have to change the fundamentals of your principle. of you have to learn to get the message out there. for example, when romney announced paul ryan, you notice the background, all white. why? that's just stupid if you're trying to reach out to voters. same thing at the convention -- >> you blame it solely on on the candidate himself not -- >> and the party. the candidate and the campaign and some of our senatorial candidates got it
